    Default Lalique Encre Noir

    I planned a bottle Versace l'homme today but came home with a 100 ml.bottle Encre Noire.I couldn't restist this stunning scent and decided to buy the Versace another time.I think the longevity is very good but how about the sillage? I've never smelled something else that came in the direction of Encre Noire and I think its a good buy for use in the coming colder months.Did anybody used it in hot weather?

    Very dry, but works miracles in the dry down, which I love. However, i do detest the opening (smells like newspapers).

    Funny scent, I received this one in a swap, in a transparant vial, and the stuff itself is transparent as well - like water.

    So I always regarded Encre Noir as a very light, translucent scent, much in the vein (!) of Prada Infusion d'Homme for example. However, here on Basenotes, I often read how people find this stuff 'dark', 'brooding', 'heavy'...

    ... so I wonder whether I'm influenced by the looks of the translucent juice, and/or if most Basenoters are influenced by the big bossy black ink bottle of Encre Noir.

    Fascinating, I always believe our perception of smell is influenced by many things, including the bottle and the name of a frag.

    And often the price, although we never want to admit that.

    It is a great year-round intense vetiver scent.

    The bottle is great too, which you would expect considering Lalique's heritage. Even the spray mechanism is very good: easy to control and provides a perfect mist. A lot of companies put out beautiful bottles with cheap, flimsy sprays on them.

    Perhaps you can't smell ISO E Super well. I also find Encre Noir to be light and blame it on ISOE. To make sure, I can hardly smell anything from Molecule 01 which is simply diluted ISOE.

    Unhappy Re: Lalique Encre Noir

    I have not yet tried this fragrance but, I wish I could remember who the reviewer was, but I was surprised at how horrible the review went. I do remember that mention was made that it was in no way as good as the mens version. I will try to ferret out where I saw this and report back.

    Nah, Molecule 01 works on me.
